I know some folks have played this at LT in the past.

This shouldn't be difficult to get 5 more people to play (myself and my partner are already in).

Unless it's too old for the LT Cult of the New sheep. devil

Item for Geeklist "New to you June 2015 => Best new boardgame"

I only played two new-to-me games last June (interestingly, it's the same count this June) and I haven't touched either since. I would guess that the problem with Struggle of Empires is that our main SoE enthusiast and game explainer moved away. As far as I can recall, this game was a lot of fun with some really tense decision making. I'll have to revisit it even if I have to buy a copy.

I was very fortunate to play a prototype copy of Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar with the designer while he was in town for work last June. This was one of few copies in existence at the time so it's no surprise that I haven't racked up further plays. However, during that time I decided not to pre-order it and I haven't been that keen on playing it not that it's had a full release. I realized that I don't want to play COIN very often and if I do, I'd almost always prefer to play one of the first three titles. I'm not saying I'd refuse to play Falling Sky, it's a fun game, I'm just not actively trying to make it happen.

Mint! Still in the shrink wrap!

One of the best games out there for 7 players! Assuming you love great euro-war games :-) The bidding for turn order/alliances is the highlight of the game.

Comes from smoke free home.

This is game can be played by up to 7 players. You are one of the great powers in the 18th century vying for supremacy in Europe and in colonies across the globe. It is played over the course of 3 "wars"

In a game like this, diplomacy would normally be wide open. But this game has a nifty little feature. Before each war, sides are chosen. Players bid for the right to put any two powers into the two opposing alliances. When two powers are placed, a new round of bidding occurs and two more powers are placed. Thus in a 5 player game, 3 rounds of bidding are completed and one side has 3 powers and the other has 2. Within an alliance players are not allowed to attack each other.

Thus, during bidding, you get all kinds of crafty play. You may want to put the leader in a different alliance so you can attack him. Or, you may want to put a threatening power in your alliance so he can't attack you, etc.



Pretty clever.
